POEM: Many Good Deeds You Can InshaAllah Do In Ramadan

In the Name of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Allahu Akbar time these days flies quickly.
Sha'ban has come, one month before Ramadan -
Ramadan: the noble month in which we fast,
And in which was revealed the Noble Qur'an.

To get ready for fasting in Ramadan,
Fast some Sunnah fasts in Sha'ban, for Allah.
Nine good deeds I'll share now in this poem, which
You can do in Ramadan inshaAllah:

One: Besides fasting, pray Taraweeh at night -
For men to pray at the masjid it's a must.
While it's best for sisters to pray at home, they
May join the group - without causing any fuss.

Two: During Ramadan, after each salah,
Read pages from the Qur'an for Allah's sake.
Knowing that each harf gives you ten hasanaat -
More good can benefit you on Judgment Day.

Three: Whether you've been wronged or miss someone close,
Whatever you need, ask Allah by all means.
Say more du'as, including all Muslims, while
Believing that Allah always sees and hears.

Four: If you are able, travel for Allah,
And perform 'Umrah while fasting or at night -
Five: Learn more about Islam, share your knowledge,
Understand the Qur'an and enjoin what's right.

Six: In Ramadan be extra generous -
Be willing to give what you have so much of.
More sadaqah and zakah in this month. And
If you don't have much, share joys and smiles with love.

Seven: Do more good deeds voluntarily,
Like praying Sunnah Duhaa before Dhuhr,
Exchanging salaams with Muslims, spending more
Time with Allah through du'as and lots of Dhikr.

Eight: Strive to quit bad habits such as smoking,
Listening to music, mentioning bad words -
Sisters spreading lies against each other, and
Brothers unnecessarily chatting with girls.

Nine: Avoid oversleeping in the daytime,
Praying late or wasting time on playing games.
Minimize your Internet usage. In this
Month - also excel at lowering your gaze.

Practice silence. Choose your words and companions.
Avoid those who mock and talk about others.
It's better to have Allah as your True Friend
Than befriend fakes who'll get you into trouble.

For sisters who still have some fasts to make up,
Complete your fasts before Ramadan arrives.
Extravagant shopping for food - and cooking
Should not serve as distractions for Muslim wives.

Ramadan - a chance to renew our Imaan,
A time when good deeds to Allah are more dear,
When du'as are even more heard and answered -
A special guest that visits us once a year.

May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds and our fasting, May Allah the Most Forgiving forgive all our sins, and May Allah the Almighty join us with His righteous friends in Firdaus/Heaven near Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad sallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Ameen.
